About

Our Mountain: A fantasy historical visual novel

$395

70

Our Mountain takes place in an isolated region of ancient Japan. One day Kumiko, a woman living alone on the mountaintop, finds two soaked Yokai in her home. Unable to cross the flooding river due to melting snow and ice, they must stay with her until the river recedes. As they live together their true reason for descending the mountain becomes apparent, thrusting Kumiko into a difficult situation-one that could paint the valley in blood. Will she choose her gut feeling, or will she be swayed by the yokai's words?

Why I chose Kickstarter:

Making games is a very rewarding, wonderful experience. However, if you can't draw like me, that means commissioning others who can for assets. 

What to expect:

I'm hoping to reach the goal quickly, as it isn't very large compared to commercial games. Afterwards, hopefully we can reach some stretch goals which will include more in-game assets and rewards for you! 

Nearly 100% will go into art, with the rest going towards writing or music. 

CGs: 90$ or 90%

Logo: $30 or 10% 

Stretch Goals:

  • Un-locakble content such as extra scenes and epilogue
  • More CGs
  • Animated characters and CGs
  • Transition animations
  • Potential voice acting, full or partial
  • Character chibis~

Risks and challenges

The timeline for the project is by the first of December. However, if funds aren't met or we raise more, the artists may need more time to provide the assets. For the un-lockable scenes for $5 patrons, the password will be provided once the game is officially published.
